Now that the goverment are bringing up income taxes (something that should have being done on a smaller scale three years ago) i really am wondering how much longer its going to take holy Ireland to stop and look at the adult industry as a means of taxation?
Now each to their own.I never had any prob with an adult doing what they think is right for them but two things that i have problems with in relation to the escort industry are,
(1) kerb crawling making a nuisance of society in general.No woman can walk along Morrisons Isl without some fairy watching them.
(2) No taxes.
No 1 get a life.
No 2 is bollox.The old age slogan "Sex Sells" is said for a reason.Why in Gods name not legalise the industry?Escorts are protected ,clients are protected,competition will be better,red light areas will no longer be seen as sleezy sts but legalised and legit areas.The net tax gains for the goverment on a year basis (and i said net, not gross) would be enough to get this country up and running again.
The industry is never going to go away and ppl are never going to stop using it either for a service or for a job.Its always going to thrive.I really think that if the goverment and Ruhama for that matter, are serious about protection of escorts and legal matters in relation to the industry then they would press for legislation.This is the only way to go.To say that in this day and age,an age where soft porn stories are filling Sunday papers which are purchased by ppl coming from church,an age where sex is published on virtually all daily newspapers in some shape or form,an age where there is more and more exposure to sexual elements with even adverts showing more and more flesh,the goverment should stop and seriously look at this.
In any event,the pressure the ministers are under at the moment they could do with a ride.
High five Brian?
